In the continuing effort to support the spiritual, physical, social and financial needs of the school and ensure that this burden is uniformly distributed and shared among all families, an Volunteer Support Program (VSP) has been established.
The Volunteer Support Program gives families the option of:
- Doing a predetermined number of hours of creditable service on approved school activities and school projects; or
- Making a monetary payment in an amount set by the School.
At the time of application and re-application an Volunteer Support Program Agreement is given to each family. The agreement gives the family the option of either working the required hours or making a monetary payment. A list of approved activities from which to choose is on the agreement. The agreement must be signed and returned as part of the application and re-application process. The names of the chairpersons of all programs are handed out at the first HSA meeting. It is the responsibility of the parent to contact the work chairpersons to volunteer for a particular job.
Families with children about to enter Eighth Grade, but with no other children in the School, will be charged one-third (1/3) of the VSP Fee with their second tuition bill unless all required VSP hours are completed by August 1. An additional third of the VSP Fee will be charged with the third tuition bill unless one-third (1/3) of the creditable hours are worked by September 15. The final third of the Fee will be charged with the fifth tuition bill unless two-thirds (2/3) of creditable hours are worked by February 1. This prepaid VSP Fee will be refunded or credited to tuition upon completion of the required number of creditable service hours.
Each time hours are worked the parent/guardian must complete the online Track it Forward form. Hours are logged on the online system.
